Introducing our engineers: part 3

Another week means two more introductions. These two has helped with a little bit of everything and are a great asset to the team. Mostly. they have helped with the car in different forms but also with logistics both in Sweden and Australia. Let's get to know Elias Khatami and Elliot Jonsson.

Engineer Elias Khatami

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name Elias Khatami, I am born and raised in Stockholm but have these past years lived in Jönköping and studied Mechanical Engineering: Industrial Engineering and Management at Jönköping University.

What is you primary roll in the team?

I am a part of the mechanical team where I have been part of various projects, including the design and fabrication of the chassis, as well as the coordination of logistics for the competition. As of lately my focus has been on the energy storagepack which has posed some difficulties due to the car's shape and compliance requirements. We have however found a solution to the problem which shows the capabilities of our team, and I am certain that we will overcome any obstacle that arises.

What are three things you would bring to Australia?

The most obvious one is the car, because without it we cannot compete. I would also bring a toolbox just to be safe if anything happens to the car, and a spider repellent to avoid unneccesary emergencies.

Lets finish off with a “This or that“

Pineapple on pizza or no fruit on pizza?


Do the laundry or do the dishes?


Hot weather or cold weather?

Hot weather

Apple or Android?

The only answer to that is Android

Coca-Cola or Pepsi?


Engineer Elliot Jonsson

Tell us a little about yourself

My name is Elliot Jonsson and I am born and raised in Jönköping. Three years ago I began studying Master of Science in Engineering: Industrial Product Realisation along with some others from the team.

What is or has been your main responsibility in the team?

I have worked on the body on the car as part of the aerodynamics team and designed a 3D-printed part in the back of the car. As the body is done I have begun to help where ever I can and where help is needed. Right now we are working on putting everything together and make it all function together. I have also worked a bit on some winglets to give the car even more stability during high speed.

What do you think is the best part of being a part of JU Solar Team?

The Solar Team journey so far has been a great opportunity to test the knowledge I have accumulated during the years. It has aslo been a way to get in touch with various different companies to see the reality of the corporate world.

If you could any three things to Australia, what would it be?

I would say a brimmerhat to protect from the sun, bug spray because of obvious reasons, and a brass armchair so I don’t have to sit on the ground.

Last but not least, a “this or that“

Pineapple on pizza or no fruit on pizza?

No pineapple

Do the laundry or do the dishes?

Hot weather or cold weather?
